The First Minivan to Top the IIHS Safety Test is None Other than the 2014 Honda Odyssey

September 3rd, 2013 by

If you’re in the market for a safe, and we mean safe family hauler, then we at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake think you should look no further than the 2014 Honda Odyssey minivan, now available at our Crystal Lake, IL Honda dealership.

And, while we can sit here all day and quote safety features and specs to you (such as the fact that the 2014 Honda Odyssey features a second-generation ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) body structure as well as an advanced multi-threshold airbag system and Vehicle Stability Assist) we’re not going to do that.

That’s because the true purpose of today’s blog post is to discuss an objective third-party’s opinion on the safety of the 2014 Honda Odyssey, plus the quantitative data that fosters said opinion.

If you haven’t guessed, yet, we at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake are talking about the renowned IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) and its annual safety pick designations.

Well, for the most recent set of tests, we are thrilled to announce that the 2014 Honda Odyssey passed with flying colors. So much so, in fact, that it is officially the first minivan to earn the highest possible rating: 2013 TOP SAFETY PICK+, from the IIHS. What’s more, in the stringent final, small overlap frontal crash test the Odyssey earned a GOOD rating, which the highest possible, as well.

If you would like the opportunity to learn more about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and the safety specifics we teased in this post, then we at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake invite you to visit our conveniently located dealership for a chat and a test drive, anytime you’d like.
